Uruguayan president sees a big question mark in Venezuela without Chávez
"Politics in the Caribbean is determined by true peoples' leaders and Chávez is unquestionably one of them"
"I have questions as any other person would, because Chávez has exerted a tremendous influence on low-income Venezuelans and the Armed Forces, and finding a person able to do so is yet to come. Questions arise," the Uruguayan leader said according to radio network Montecarlo.
The president commented that "politics in the Caribbean is determined by true peoples' leaders and Chávez is unquestionably one of them." The problem, in his opinion, will be then finding someone able to follow Chávez's footsteps, Efe cited.
